DACA Update: Trump Administration Defying the Supreme Court DACA Ruling


Updated July 31, 2020

On July 28, 2020, just weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court held that the administration’s rescission of DACA was unlawful, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a memo significantly restricting DACA. The restrictions to DACA as detailed in the recent memo include the following:

No initial applications for DACA will be accepted of processed. (USCIS will not accept any new DACA or DACA related work authorization requests.)

Requests for advance parole will be limited to emergency situations. (USCIS will not approve any requests for travel (advanced parole) unless there are documented exceptional circumstances present.)

DACA renewal periods will be shortened to one year. (USCIS previously issued DACA renewals and EADs in two-year increments. Under the new memo, any renewals of DACA or DACA based employment authorization will only be granted for one-year periods.)

The memo therefore essentially limits DACA to renewal requests only, which if approved, will be granted for only one year. Although these limitations are substantial, the memo does not indicate that any prior approvals of DACA, DACA related work authorization, or advance parole will be revoked. DHS is expected to make additional announcements regarding DACA in the near future.

Actualización de DACA: la administración Trump desafía la decisión de DACA de la Corte Suprema 

Actualizado el 31 de julio de 2020 

El 28 de julio de 2020, solo unas semanas después de que la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos sostuvo que la rescisión de la administración de DACA era ilegal, el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional de los Estados Unidos (DHS) emitió un memorando que restringía significativamente DACA. Las restricciones a DACA como se detalla en la nota reciente incluyen lo siguiente:  

No se aceptarán solicitudes procesadas de DACA iniciales. (USCIS no aceptará ninguna solicitud nueva de DACA o autorización de empleo relacionada con DACA).  

Las solicitudes de permiso de viaje por adelantado se limitarán a situaciones de emergencia. (USCIS no aprobará ninguna solicitud de viaje (permiso de viaje por adelantado) a menos que haya circunstancias excepcionales documentadas presentes.  

Los períodos de renovación del DACA se acortarán a un año. (USCIS emitió previamente renovaciones de DACA y permisos de trabajo en incrementos de dos años. Según el nuevo memorando, cualquier renovación de DACA o la autorización de empleo basada en DACA solo se otorgará por períodos de un año).  

Por lo tanto, el memorando esencialmente limita DACA a las solicitudes de renovación, que si se aprueban, se otorgarán por solo un año. Aunque estas limitaciones son sustanciales, la nota no indica que se revocarán las aprobaciones previas de DACA, la autorización de empleo relacionada con DACA o permisos de viaje por adelantado. Se espera que el DHS haga anuncios adicionales sobre DACA en el futuro cercano.
